For the 2001 White House holiday theme, Laura Bush chose "Home for the Holidays" to celebrate the joy of family and loved ones. "Because this year's holday season follows a national tragedy, both home and family have speacial meaning to all Americans," said Mrs. Bush. "Gatherings of loved ones - familiar faces in familiar places - can be a tremendous source of strength and reassurance during this season of rememberance and goodwill."
For security reasons, public tours were cancelled for the 2001 holiday season at the White House. DCpages was honored to be able to tour the White House and its beautiful decorations. We hope you enjoy the image gallery of this magnificent mansion and reflect on the importance of being Home For The Holidays.
